Smart Inhalers Market Statistics - 2030

The global smart inhalers market was valued at $118 million in 2020, and is estimated to reach $1,113.57 million by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 25.1% from 2021 to 2030. The growth of the smart inhalers market is majorly driven due to rise in prevalence of COPD and asthma. The major factor attributed to increase in prevalence of COPD and asthma is rise in air pollution through naturally occurring phenomena and pollution caused by anthropogenic sources. Two key air pollutants severely trigger asthma, namely, ozone, which is found in smog and particulate matter found in smoke, haze, and dust. The susceptibility of suffering from asthma symptoms increases at an alarming rate, as the presence of both ozone and particulate matter rises in the air. Thus, upsurge in air pollution is expected to directly lead to increase in cases of asthma and COPD, which in turn propels the growth of the market.

Smart inhalers are devices utilized for delivering a variety of drugs by inhalation. Anti-cholinergic, glucocorticoids, insulin, and beta-agonists are among the drugs used in inhalers for the treatment and prevention of respiratory diseases, such as asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). These inhalers are termed smart inhalers, owing to the sensors attached as a clip on to inhalers monitoring the right dose per intake and the technique used for inhaling the medication. The data acquired by the sensor is shared with the patient and healthcare professionals to track their inhaler usage. The data monitored is then shared using the Bluetooth technology to their mobile apps through an online platform and subsequently electronic health records (EHR) or electronic medical records (EMR) are maintained.

Some smart inhalers feature sensors that can detect whether an individual is in a polluted or pollen-filled environment, send helpful reminders, and tell if one needs to check its inhaler technique. An individual does not require to keep their own records because they're all designed to automatically measure how often one uses its inhaler.

In addition, surge in the population living in under developed and developing countries is susceptible to indoor air pollutants. Population living in poor housing and neighborhood conditions is vulnerable to respiratory disorders, such as COPD and asthma. The use of kerosene lights and portable stoves for heating and cooking result in inhalation of particulates. In addition, increase in tobacco consumption among men as well as women in high-income countries and higher risk of exposure to indoor air pollution are expected to increase the prevalence of respiratory disease equally among both, men and women. Indoor pollution includes smoking, biomass fuel for heating & cooking, and poor ventilation in low-income countries. Thus, rise in indoor pollution is anticipated to, surge in asthma and COPD cases and thus, drive the market.

However, as smart inhalers are wirelessly connected and keep a record of the patient’s data, the risk of data leakage and misuse of data increases significantly. As smart inhaler is a new device, its acceptance among patients as well as physicians is considerably low, which is expected to restrain the growth of the market.

Moreover, smart inhalers are expected to increase the adherence rate of patients to traditional inhalers. Unintended non-adherence arises when patients misunderstand instructions and forget or have physical problems, such as poor coordination or eyesight, thus, leading to limited ability to take their medicines. Furthermore, various collaborations, partnerships, and acquisitions between pharmaceutical companies and smart inhaler manufacturers have increased the competition in the smart inhalers industry and the growth in healthcare expenditure in such economies offer lucrative opportunities for the market; hence, is a great opportunity for the key players to invest.

In addition, the COVID-19 outbreak is anticipated to have a positive impact on the smart inhalers market. A huge number of clinics and hospitals across the globe were restructured to increase the hospital capacity for patients diagnosed with COVID-19. Non-essential procedures took a potential backlog due to rapid rise in COVID-19 cases. The lockdown led to the disruption of manufacturing and transportation of healthcare essentials. Hospital and clinical visits increased significantly due to surge in cases of chronic respiratory diseases, and thus, led to the increase in demand for inhalers and nebulizers, which propelled the market growth.
